"The Current PROVEN Top Notch
Best Internet Security Software
for 2013, 2014 and beyond!"
Before you get to know the current best software let's explain the two
types of anti spyware and virus software that exist!
First type have 2 main features: A scanner
as well as real time protection... You can call them Type 1.
Second type have only a scanner. You can call them Type 2.
Why should you care?
Because you cannot have more than one software of the first type or
else they won't work well together - they conflict with each
other. However you can have as many software of the second type as you
That is crucial to understand...
Anti Virus software
Real Time Protection & Scanner
Security Essentials - this is totally free software from
That software is all you need for Internet Security against viruses!
Just install it, and it will protect your computer, and approximately once a month remember to run a
scan with it! Make sure to remove any other security software that have real time protection that you may have!
Anti Malware software
Real Time Protection & Scanner
This software specializes against malware (not viruses) They are two different kinds of "bad objects"!
Anti-Malware Pro - This is the one software I recommend you pay for but the free version is enough just the same! The
free version does not has real time protection so it won't conflict
with Microsoft Security Essentials. The pro version does have real time
protection and can conflict with MSE but there are some tweaks you can
make to avoid this, read
them at this link in Malwarebytes forum!
Microsoft Security Essentials (100% free) - Software of first type, it has real time protection and a scanner. The only thing you need.
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - Software
of first type, free or paid version, free version is enough, use free
version as an extra scanner (only pro version has real time protection).
your computer has those two only your computer is in safe hands, even
if for Malwarebytes you get the free version not the pro one!
with just a Scanner
are like icing sugar to the cake - these won't protect your computer
unless you use them to make a scan! Meaning they don't have real time
protection, this also means they won't conflict with Microsoft Security
Essentials or Malwarebytes or any other software which has real time
That also means you can download as many of these as you want, although remember they take up hard disk space!
Here are some good ones:
Malicious Software Removal Tool
- This is a free software from Microsoft and
you get a new version of it every month (automatically with Windows
Update) - just open it and scan with it. To open it click Start and
type in MRT and then click on MRT application.
If you think you don't have it you can download
it from Microsoft Site.
Free Online Scanner - This is another scanner specialized to detect viruses!
Spybot Search & Destroy
- this does have real time protection but you can disable it, read the
manual or check their forums to learn how to disable the real time
And there are more.
Download just 1 of these unless your computer has problems which may be
traced to a virus/spyware in which case it's a good idea to download
more than 1 scanner.
This software protects your browser (which is the tool you use to
access the Internet, e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, etc) when
you're buying online, logging in to websites, etc.

passwords, when you're buying etc. Watch the

This is simple: Just use the
tools equipped with your computer, if it's Windows then you have Disk
Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter. Avoid registry cleaners, uninstallers,
driver updaters or the so called PC tune ups - they're extermely risky
The less you do the better!
If your computer has problems then seek profesional advice, don't start
downloading software that promise to fix - case in point device
drivers, if your PC does not have problems just don't update anything -
use Windows Update their recommended updates only.
Final Special Note
highly important that you read the manual and/or instructions on their
forum to learn how to use any software properly and more importantly
